In Buddhism, one of the core teachings is that of ‘Dependent Origination’. This teaching states that: “Everything is interconnected. Everything affects everything else. Everything that is, is because other things are.”
I think this is an important idea to remember when you feel the urge to bask in your own glory and give your ego a back rub. Everything I accomplish, I accomplish because of someone else.
This blog would not exist without my family, friends, teachers, mentors, coaches and a bunch of other people who taught me everything I know and inspired me to learn and teach.
Therefore, I’d like to say ‘Thank You’ to…
Daniel J. Siegel
William B. Irvine
